Agree. Zucc is creating chances and not finishing his own leading to not getting on the score sheet.

Ideally, he is a 3rd liner who gets PP time. Pouliot is also best slotted for 3rd line duty. Our problem is we don't have 6 top 6 forwards and guys are being asked to play above their heads.

when healthy, we could go with the following in our top 6

Step
Nash
Richards
Brass
Cally
Hagelin
(Maybe Kreider if he continues to excel in Hartford)

Then Zucc and Pouliot can get 3rd line duty and Boyle, Moore, Dorsett and Pyatt can work in on the 4th line. I guess Miller would be the third line center. If we master the new system, that roster should be very competitive and maybe really good. Right now it's hard to think positively but we have good pieces when slotted properly.
